Wait a minute, didn't I just do that?

While on my walk about that I started yesterday in my Seven of Air, I have got caught up in a storm.  The only thing to do was to build or find myself a refuge and ride out the storm.  This card has so much brown.  To be enveloped in this brown shroud could weaken anyone's resolve to keep moving along that path. 

Isn't that the way of things.  Determined to try something new, begin a new regimen, make those New Years resolutions, and then something blows in and knocks us off our path.  I have been reading Dr. Joe Dipenza's book, YOU ARE THE PLACEBO.   We have 60,000 - 70,000  thoughts a day and most are the same thoughts as yesterday. I thought, no wonder I have such a challenge making a change (challenge and change) when only a small portion of my waking day is making any progress.
So now I have to give this card a different look see and think, it may not represent riding out the storm, but giving myself some meditation time, to quiet the mind from all my turbulent thoughts and think some new thoughts.

  1. This is exactly what I mean by rephrasing your story. Don't you love is when the cards follow up on eachother so perfectly. :)

    1. Yes I do. Is it Life imitating Art or Art imitating Life?

  2. To be aware of the thoughts we're thinking instead of on automatic pilot is a skill worth developing. :)
